SOUP SUNDAY: QUINOA TORTILLA SOUP

Swap the chicken for quinoa in this healthy vegetarian Quinoa Tortilla Soup recipe! Quinoa is high in fiber and protein and makes a great non-meat alternative in this spicy Mexican soup.

I am so so excited to reveal a new series kicking off this year on THM! By now it is no secret that I love soup. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I could live off soup and balls and be perfectly content for life. I pretty much eat soup everyday for lunch and if C isn’t around to complain, I’ll eat it for dinner (not giving him a bad rap- he just doesn’t necessarily want soup everyday for dinner!)


And while there certainly are plenty of soup options around here, I am bursting with so many ideas that I just have to share more. So with that, I am thrilled to announce SOUP SUNDAY!

Every Sunday through the winter months, I will be posting a new soup recipe. My hope is that this recipe will help feed you throughout the week. Making a big batch of soup to have on hand for lunches and dinners is how I meal-prep and selfishly I want you to get on board with me.
